Student Placement

As part of many of our courses we offer students the opportunity to obtain industrial experience as part of their time with us.

While the details of these placement modules might differ slightly between programmes, the purpose remains the same, and the general guidelines as set out in the Industrial Placement Handbook apply to all placement programmes at the school.



The DT228 and DT211C B.Sc. in Computer Science programmes includes the option of a Seven-Month, Full-Time, Paid Industrial Placement for students. 

The DT265 Higher Diploma in Computing (H.Dip.) Conversion course includes a six-month industrial placement for students.


More details of what's specifically covered in the courses where internship is an optional module can be found at the links below:

Our MSc students are available for internship but this is only a three month internship for the summer months June - September.

In terms of graduate opportunities, we’re happy to advertise vacancies within the School both to students directly and on the School’s Facebook page.


External Examiners

As part of the continuous QA procedures at the DIT School of Computing, we need academic and industry representatives to sit on Programme, School and College review boards. These boards help to ensure the relevance and quality of all undergraduate and gradaute programmes taught at or taught by the School of Computing.

We also need external examiners to participate in the ongoing quality control of the assessment of modules taught and examined at the school.
